Sound Bites: DIVE, jj and Kanye West

DIVE's "How Long Have You Known?"

After a string of some very solid singles, Beach Fossils offshoot and recent BUZZSound DIVE are finally set to unveil Oshin, their full-length debut due out June 26th on Captured Tracks. "How Long Have You Known?" is the LP's blurry lead-off track, and you can warm up to the listen alongside more new material when Z. Cole Smith brings his project out on the road for the next two months alongside fellow spangly indie-popper Frankie Rose.

jj's "Beautiful Life"
Just in time for springtime's full bloom, ethereal Swedish pop duo jj have announced plans to release a brand new single. The tropic-minded A-side "Beautiful Life" can be heard below and will be accompanied by the B-side "Burn" when the jj n° 4 single arrives May 8th on Secretly Canadian.

Kanye West's "Mercy" (feat. Big Sean, Pusha T & 2 Chainz)
Whether it be in homage to the religious observance of Good Friday or not, hip-hop's spotlight-grabbing king Kanye West has resurrected his label's weekly G.O.O.D. Friday mixtape series. For the first new installment off its second run (which apparently culminates in the release of a G.O.O.D. Music collaborative LP,) he's joined by the roster's Big Sean, Pusha T alongside 2 Chainz for the Lifted-produced "Mercy." It shouldn't surprise anyone that it's the kind of big-sounding track you'd expect to emerge from 'Ye's enormous ego.
